Kim Palita of Hockessin tells why she has been a walker for five years.
"Both of my girls benefited from the March for Babies. My 5-year-old Cailyn was born 8 and a half weeks early. So I was in the hospital on bed rest prior to that and received medication that helped progress her lungs, so when she was born she was only in the NICU for four weeks," she said.

Palita received medicines to hold off labor to carry her other daughter Tiegan to 37 weeks. Both little girls are healthy.
The walk raised about $300,000 to help families affected by premature birth.
